Sounds like the kind of weather we have been getting... very unstable. If they would change the name from "Global Warming" to "Climatic Change" it would get more people believing. I have lived in basically the same place for 43 years and recently (last few years) the weather hasn't been either warmer or colder, but our local extremes have been worse with a more violent and abrupt change. The storms are worse, the snows deeper and more frequent, the summers hotter and drier. Definitely different and the best part is that we usually get the most of our snow in March. Something to look forward to... but at least we have night and day here!

Right now in Summerfield NC:
Sunny, 34 F, 3" Snow/Ice on the ground, 15-25 mph Wind
Not too bad I guess!?!

well it's my understanding that the warming thing was related to the oceans/polar ice cap melting which leads to climate change. I'm no Scientist but I think they most definitely have proved that one.

Damn it, didn't you get the memo? It's climate change.
I want you to write that 150 times before the end of the day. You can leave it on my desk. I'm really disappointed Mando. Your re-education just took a huge step backward.

Well of course it's climate change because it all freaking melted.

Anthropogenic climate change is an entirely different beast - maybe like a unicorn, maybe not?

Doesn't climate change happen all the time?
The causation we may differ on, but surely we as a species can not be so vain as to think one hundred fifty years of fossil fuel use and an exponential growth rate of humans who , as humans do, expel gas from time to time has caused any such change. Let's get a few Krakatoa eruptions going or a huge asteroid slamming through the atmosphere or the sudden tilting of the axis of the Earth to change to talk about climate change. This is science as belief system, not science as how do we make a computer work. So called man made global warming, so vogue just a few years ago, is about control.
